My favourite imam

Since the release of her debut album in 2013, rapper Silvana Imam has been one of the loudest and most challenging voices in Swedish music. This candid and intimate documentary is a film about the woman behind the incendiary lyrics and the fearless public persona, and gives an insight into Imam’s multicultural heritage as well as her relationship with pop singer Beatrice Eli. Showing the celebrated feminist, gay rights activist, anti-racist and hitmaker backstage, on the barricades and in bed, SILVANA is a unique portrait of one of Scandinavia’s most inspiring artists.
